I have Catalyst 4507r setup and testing the redundant supervisor failover before I put it live. The Sup engines are both Sup II Plus. I have the auto sync standard enabled and I can see the sups sync.
So I run a constant ping from a laptop to a server through the 4507r.
Now my thinking about how it should work is this... when I force a switch over or pull out the active sup the ping should keep replying without missing a beat.
What really happens is this... when I force the switchover the ping times out and comes back up when the new redundant sup initializes.
My question is this... Is this the way its redundant sups are supposed to work? Or is the connection supposed to keep running without missing a beat?
